इस शहर की तरकी को देखो,
बच्चों के सपनों को तरकी की ज़हरीली हवा में डूबता हुआ मत देखो
देश में अच्छे दिन है कुछ लोगों की मौत को मत देखो,
हमको क्या फर्क पड़े किसी और की दुनिया उजड़ने से हमारी इंसानियत का नकाब देखो ।।


Spirit of the child

Flow with the spirit of the child, and you will be uplifted,
Let the child flow and see them glow,
Feel their unburdened Joy!!
And, keep your spirits high!


The most convincing argument for unschooling

Why should children be not sent to school and learn on their own at home? In, this article, the author says –

Unschoolers learn just like you or I learn as adults: based on what interests them, figuring out how to learn it on their own, changing as they change, using whatever resources and learning materials they find, driven by curiosity and practical application rather than because someone says it’s important.

In last 2-3 years, I have explored stuff which has interested me, on my own – whether it is history, philosophy, world music or maths. Even when it comes to programming, I learned most of the agile related stuff – due to intrinsic motivation of wanting to know how to do deliver working software in better and efficient way.


Quotes on children

Children have a remarkable ability to see things in new and creative ways, things that we don’t really see because they’re so familiar.

@Gloria Walther
Think of a positive way to phrase what you want your child to do. Instead of just saying, “Don’t,” tell your child what they CAN do.

(Hmm, I need to keep this in my mind !)
